REDUSE: Become aware of energy and consumption, using what we really need and choosing not to spend more then what we need. 

RE-USE: Find new use for old objects or share them with others. Carry your own re-usable water bottle! Re-use boxes, trays and more.

REPAIR: Repair or upgrade your objects rather then throwing them away. Do it yourself items are 'the fashion way of modern life style.

RE-GIFT: The best gifts are the ones made with the love of our attention. Sharing something personal, being part of the gift economy.

BE THE CHANGE:

Everything given the love of our attention will grow. It lies in our hands now to start changing the future of our children and heal the earth. There is much more that we can do. It helps to buy local products to reduce the investment in transports, to use solar power energy and grow your own food. Together we can make great improvements and this unity will result in higher levels of satisfaction, health, care and self-sustainability.
